The HIV virus isn’t such a ‘deadly’ virus itself, but it’s what the virus does to your immune system that makes it so deadly. HIV severely cripples your immune system making you susceptible to all types of sicknesses and diseases.
Your immune system works twenty-four seven, protecting you from all types of bacteria and viruses. When your body is working in tip-top condition, your immune system can fight off most illnesses. You’re usually unaware of your immune system – until you get sick, and that’s when something gets past your immune system.
Did you know: your skin is a crucial part of your immune system. It’s your first line of defense against invading bacteria and viruses.
Improve Immune System
So what causes people to get sick? The most common causes of illnesses come from viral and bacterial infections. These include flues, colds, malaria, influenza, etc… Your immune system works hard to keep your body clean from these infections.
- It creates a barrier that prevents the ‘bad stuff’ from invading your body.
- The human immune system detects and eliminates invading infections that got into our body before they get a chance to reproduce.
- The human immune system works hard to eliminate any virus or bacteria that was able to reproduce and cause problems.
Your skin is your first barrier against bacteria and viruses. It keeps your body clean of infections, and when some bacteria get by, the rest of your immune system will quickly get rid of it.
